In response to the need for accurate and up-to-date information on human mobility and forced displacement in North East Nigeria, IOM activated its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) to support the Government and the humanitarian community with
multi-layered data on the numbers, trends, status, locations and needs of populations affected by the on-going conflict in North East Nigeria. Round 38 of assessment was conducted from 21 June to 27 July 2021.
During Round 38, site assessments were conducted in 2,380 locations. Assessed locations included 309 camps and camp-like settlements as well as 2,071 locations where internally displaced persons were living among host communities (down from 2,089 in Round 37). The purpose was to better understand the gaps in services provided and the needs of the affected population. Site assessments included an analysis of sector-wide needs, shelter and non-food items, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food and nutrition, health, education, livelihood, security, communication and protection.
This dashboard presents key findings from these site assessments. DTM identified 879,400 IDPs living in the 309 assessed sites. 81 per cent of IDPs were women and children. 68% of IDPs cited tarpaulin as the most needed shelter material, while 47% of IDPs cited blanket/mat as the most needed NFI. 13% of IDPs do not have access to regular medication, and 21% of IDPs do not have access to food support. In 86% of the sites surveyed, IDPs cited food as the main unmet need.
